Spinach Lasagna Rollups

It's funny how just changing up the presentation of a dish can change perceptions. I made this dish just as I would my regular Manicotti or lasagna recipe, yet my family thought it was totally different and more delicious than regular lasagna. :)

12 uncooked lasagna noodles
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 ½ cups ricotta cheese
2 ½ cups (10 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (I don’t use the whole package)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 jar (26 ounces) meatless spaghetti sauce

Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the eggs, cheeses, spinach, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Spread 1/3 cup cheese mixture over each noodle; carefully roll up.

Pour 1 cup spaghetti sauce into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Place roll-ups seam side down over sauce. Top with remaining sauce. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.
